Social learning is now a necessity in training programs. It’s about people learning from other people. We’ve been learning that way for 20,000 years and we’ve gotten used to it. That’s what gets learners engaged.
Falls Church, VA (PRWEB) September 04, 2013
Q2 Learning, LLC, a software/services company that helps customers achieve a competitive advantage by enabling proficiency-based learning, announced the release of Q2 Learning System 6 (http://www.q2learning.com). This next-generation learning management system (LMS) integrates traditional training and elearning delivery with social learning paths, online communities, and performance support.
Q2 Learning System 6 implements the best practices of instructional design, allowing users to create powerful content and social activities by combining multiple elements of content dissemination into their training programs, such as small group activities, exercises, assessments, large group discussions, coaching, and stretch assignments.
“Social learning is no longer optional in training programs,” says Bill Bruck, principal and co-founder of Q2 Learning. “The user experience is no longer about simply absorbing content. It’s about people learning from other people. We’ve been learning that way for 20,000 years and we’ve gotten used to it. That’s what gets learners engaged.”
The new System 6 (http://www.q2learning.com/products3.php) helps organizations integrate all types of learning and social activities, track those activities, and view how they affect each learner. Each user is assigned a specific role, which provides access to what they need – such as social media, communities, forums, feeds, blogs, content libraries –and simultaneously assigns what they require – such as learning resources and blended learning courses.
Any number of communities can be created within Q2 Learning System 6, which allows groups of learners to share best practices, work together as an online team, or complete action learning projects. The completion of every activity is tracked – even social activities.
System 6 includes numerous other enhancements, such as an upgraded Learner Dashboard with intuitive access to classes, elearning modules, assessments and assignments; dashboards for instructors, managers and administrators; and intuitive wizards and templates for creating everything from scheduled classes to complex blended learning programs.
